Duncan's profile

I have over 30 years' experience as a tax adviser, and Meredith Tax is over 7 years old.

I trained and worked within the 'Big 4' firms of Chartered Accountants, mainly acting for UK 'plc' groups. Also, at middle tier and independent firms, saving tax for family and owner-managed businesses and individuals. I have written many articles for the press.

I have specialized in property tax for all of my career, from large quoted groups to privately owned businesses. I have also advised individuals on all the tax implications of 'Buy to Let' investments, small developments and more.

I can understand any situation brought to me. While I can work to the highest possible tax technical standards, I can explain complex issues in an easily-understood manner. 

I help with personal tax: income tax (including the Statutory Residence Test); capital gains tax, including PPR and the recent NRCGT; inheritance tax: and other taxes.

I offer a free introductory meeting to get to know you and your plans or concerns so I can grasp the situation and identify relevant issues. We then agree a budget for me to carry out initial research, with the aim, as appropriate for what we have discussed, of coming up with a suggested action plan. 

I often help other professional firms of accountants and lawyers with tax issues; enhancing their existing client relationships by providing tax solutions. This can be 'behind the scenes' or, if appropriate, working direct with the client. 

I do not prepare or submit accounts or tax returns but I often help with their completion, either following the implementation of tax planning I have designed or sometimes by giving advice on individual issues.

See below for a summary of recent projects that I have advised on.

Meredith Tax LLP advises businesses in Leeds & West and North Yorkshire. But don't let geography get in the way of asking for tax advice - I have clients who are based all over the UK!
